Authors: Mohammed, Abu
Issue Date: 22-Jun-2012
Abstract: This research work was done in partial fulfilment for a Degree. The research objective was to assess the administrative processes employed in the management of maintenance project execution on trunk roads and the Ghana Highway Authority, Volta Region was used as a case study. It also tried to identify the challenges confronting the GHA in the maintenance of road projects. A field targeted investigation was adopted. Field data on user perceptions were sampled using administered questionnaires among GHA employees in the Volta Region. The sample population were the entire GHA staff in the Volta region but a sample size of thirty (30) was chosen for the study. This was because a judgmental sampling technique was used to select staff members who play various roles in maintenance project execution in the Region. The findings reveled that, GHA to a large extent, follow some bureaucratic processes as a public organization in the management of maintenance projects. However, most of the personnel directly involved in the management of maintenance projects are of the view that projects are executed without fixed completion dates and cost which seem very unusual. Probably, the long delays experienced in execution of maintenance projects coupled with extension of time and their attendant cost may justify their perception and GHA much work to change that perception. Furthermore, it is recommended that the road agencies in general needs to be mindful of the control of time and cost in their management of projects to improve the confidence that the workers and the entire public have in them.
